The latest group show extravaganza at Jeffrey Deitch’s Los Angeles gallery is organized by Dan Nadel and Laurie Simmons, and it’s an ebullient, dark and literally magical situation. Looking for the best way to describe their shared affinity for occult-influenced, ritualistic, sex-forward, fantasy-land, subversively gendered narrative art, they settled on “witchy” and set about gathering their expansive coven. With literally dozens of diverse and eclectic artists, All of Them Witches includes legends like Judy Chicago, Cameron, Georganne Deen, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Lyle Ashton Harris, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Ana Mendieta, Marilyn Minter, Shirin Neshat, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, Nancy Spero, Marnie Weber, and Lisa Yuskavage.
Jeffrey Deitch, 925 N. Orange Drive, Hancock Park; opening reception: Sat., Feb. 8, 6-8 p.m.; on view Feb. 8-April 11; free. deitch.com.
